bytes Support Agriculture Education by Recycling West Virginia Farm Bureau’s Mobile Agriculture Education Science Lab is partnering with Evolve Recycling to help reduce the number of office and technology items that are thrown away everyday. In exchange for these recyclable items, Evolve Recycling will make monetary donations to our “Ag on the Move” program. So, we need YOUR help! We are accepting the following items for recycling: ink and toner cartridges (any kind); cell phones; digital cameras; GPS devices and iPods/mp3 players. Instead of throwing these items into the trash, bring them to the West Virginia Farm Bureau office, turn them in for recycling, and help support “Ag on the Move”! If you or your company would like to support our recycling efforts but can’t get your items to the Farm Bureau office, please call Becky at 304-472-2080 x. 2 West Virginia Farm Bureau News 311, and we will have a collection box and/ or pre-paid shipping label sent to you. Fill the box with 20 items, and then have UPS pick it up. It’s that simple! One extra note: Evolve Recycling has a remanufacturing facility right here in West Virgnia. So, you’re not only helping agriculture education, but you’re also helping to provide jobs in the Mountain State!
